“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”
Hebrews 4:15-16 (NLT)
What you believe about God makes all the difference in the world. The author of Hebrews shares one of the most poignant views of God in all of Scripture. He uses the illustration of a High Priest that stands between us and God. But not a human impersonal and sinful High Priest. Rather, a High Priest that can bring us to God because He faced all the same testing as we do, but without sin. A High Priest that paid the price for our sins so we could come boldly to God the Father and receive His love and forgiveness. And who is this High Priest? It is Jesus. It is Jesus who has made it possible for us to know God. Possible to receive mercy and forgiveness. Possible to find God’s grace when we need it the most. So today, come to Jesus. Come for cleansing. Come for forgiveness. Come for the grace to help you where you need it the most.
Father, thank You that Your Son, Jesus, became my Great High Priest. Thank You for His death on the cross. Thank You for forgiving me. Thank You for the grace to live for You.
